Good “Thursday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse Leader on a cloudy day here in Metrowest Boston, South! It is expected that we are having a cold snap hit us later today and through tomorrow... Safe travels to Costa Rica, my friend!

It is: “Chasing Dreams Day!” Are you chasing your dreams? Have you let them go and regret it?

"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure." - Paulo Coelho

"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal." - Pamela Vaull Starr

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you have imagined." - Henry David Thoreau

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." - Harriet Tubman - American Abolitionist

"Don't let go of your dreams. If you have determination and belief in your dreams, you will succeed in spite of your desire to let go." - Catherine Pulsifer

"Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

And so it goes...

"When the challenge is calling, and the purpose is right leaders, can chase their dreams." — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Sgt (Join to see) - Definitely heading out the door inn about an hour to catch a flight to Costa Rica as we continue to chase a dream brother. Thanks for the great quotes...

“The ‘Chase Dreams’ message comes today as we head out for Costa Rica to continue work on dream that Steve Durgin, myself, Victory for Veteran, Inc. and a number of Investors have been working for the last two years. We’re catching up to that dream and it’s becoming a reality. That what visions and dreams are all about. Our dream is to build a Life Readiness Center (LRC) for Veterans and Frist Responders that will provide a variety of holistic modalities for PTSD, TBI, MST, and other Invisible Disabilities/Wounds in a tranquil off the grid location of beauty. That leads me to this quote about Chasing Dreams…

‘It’s not enough just to dream of your ideas, you’ve got take action to bring about their creation.’ — Doreen Virtue

May you catch your dreams that you’re chasing; may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a continued bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. I’ll be posting and responding from Costa Rica as best I can over the next 10 days.” – COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

I hope your dreams are in alignment with the plan of God for your life as well as HIS plan for the lives of those who depend on you. I expect you appreciate the types of challenges which stimulate your mind without too much stress on your talents and resources. No doubt you are aware of the admonitions of the LORD to submit our plans to HIM and rely on HIS guidance. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways submit to Him and HE will make your path straight.’ [Proverbs 3:5-6] my brother-in-Christ Sgt (Join to see).

I lift each of YOUR adopted sons and daughters who are facing significant challenges to health, welfare and/or financial resources especially those suffering from PTSD, mental illness, significant burns, communicable diseases and their family members and caretakers to YOU LORD. YOU are always aware of the needs and desires of each person. By YOUR grace YOU provide for our needs. Sometimes YOU act sovereignly while many times YOU motivate people to help in YOUR perfect timing. ‘And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life.’ [Luke 12:22-25 ESV]
YOUR common grace blesses all flora, fauna and humanity with sunshine, rain, gentle winds, morning dew, and the symbiotic relationship between flora and fauna – oxygen and carbon dioxide generation and exchange. ‘The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in loving devotion. The LORD is good to all; His compassion rests on all He has made.’ [Psalm 145:8-9 ESV]
I pray for sufficient self-control, patience, and stamina for each of YOUR adopted sons and daughters, dear LORD, to persevere through the challenges we will face through the summer. I am thankful that YOU are strengthening the character and fortitude of each of us as YOU prepare us. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. [2 Peter 1:5-9 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Thursday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Friday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse. I am on and off today while I work to complete education requirements for my license in virtual class today.
Chasing your dreams. You can't live your dream if you are not willing to get up and do what's necessary to make it happen. Even if you fall short you will be in a better place than if you never tried. I haven't always made it all the way to my final goal but what I've accomplished "enroute" has made the effort well worth it. If you can't muster the effort to chase your dream you need to evaluate what it is that you believe you really want in life.
Had a very inspiring group of veterans yesterday for a workshop on emotional resiliency, dealing with depression and suicide. I heard some stories about finding a new dream and using it for inspiration to move into a new and better place.

I want the memories of hatred and revenge to fade and my depression to end. I want to find a new dream and a fresh sanctuary or space to adopt. I want memories of a great military life, when the thoughts of that hatred, those threats, the wrath, those fake charges and the predetermined trials, which hurt not only the Government's case, but others too. The ugly leadership depresses me. What should I do?

"Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
It's not aimed at anyone
It's just escaping on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing"
-Bob Dylan

Chase your dreams today, RallyPoint, and don't forget your coffee.

COL Mikel J. Burroughs - I used a lot of Dylan lyrics as poetry in the high school class I taught, and some of the other teachers laughed at me for it. Then I went bonkers the day Dylan got a Nobel Literature Prize for his lyrics. I was yelling, "Told ya so!"

SP5 Jeannie Carle - One of my dreams was to build a radio or TV station, from scratch. I was laughed at, when I told my friends. Less than 48 hours later, I got a phone call, offering me the job to built a TV station. Be Blessed!
